Burundi Presidency Reacts To Coup Declaration By Army General, Says It Is Fake.

Following massive protests in Burundi after news of third term bid for president Nkurunziza, earlier today there was news of coup declaration  by army general Godefroid Niyombare but reacting to the news of his government's dismissal Burundian presidency said.....

"It is with regret that we have learned that a group of soldiers rebelled this morning and made a fake declaration about a coup. The Presidency of the Republic wants the public opinion both in Burundi and abroad to know that this coup attempt has been stopped and that the people who read that statement on private local radio are being sought by the defence and security forces so that they are brought to justice. The Presidency of the Republic is asking the people of Burundi as well as foreigners to keep calm. Everything is being done to maintain security across the national territory."

Meanwhile Burundian citizens have gone to the streets to celebrate with soldiers after the announcement of coup declaration. See some photos..........
